In a family film written by Astrid Lindgren and directed by Lasse Hallstrom you might expect quite a bit of fun and fancy free. Instead "Alla vi barn i Bullerbyn" turns out almost completely free of fantasy. With thinly disguised autobiographical narration by lead character Lisa, this story of simple country life recalls simpler times gone by and is a welcome alternative for parents to show today's toddlers accustomed to Manga style entertainment (if their attention spans have not already been affected that is).
Director: Lasse Hallstrom.
Cast: Soren Petersson, Ingwar Svensson, Elisabeth Nordkvist, Crispin Dickson Wendenius, Henrik Larsson, Tove Edfeldt.
